School starts in over 2 weeks now (September 5th), which is still too long for me. I’m stuck at home, bored, watching The Godfather on TV (okay, one bright spot) and realizing that I need some activity in my life. After the excitement of moving and unpacking all my stuff, I’m still trying to make this place seem like home — Which is hard when you’re 2000+ miles away from most of your friends and family. I’m finding myself singing/thinking about that Joni Mitchell song “Big Yellow Taxi,” especially the lyrics “don’t it always seem to go / that you don’t know what you’ve got til its gone.” Once September rolls around, I’m looking forward to burying myself in work to keep my mind off mistakes of my past.
I’ve been ruminating WAY too much lately.
